What are good jobs to choose when join the air force that will transfer well into a good career in civilian?
I am joining the Air force in the spring/summer of 08 . I need some advice on A.)how to get your recruiter to put in writing a guarantee on the job you want. and B.) What are a list of good jobs that will transfer into a good career once out of the military? I already have my BA degree, in psychology and while I am in the air force I plan on going to school to get my masters , hopefully to aid what I am doing in the air force. My hope in joining the air force is to gain knowledge in a skill that will be able to transfer into civilian life after 3 or so years. I have a family that is depending on my plans so any suggestions on how to go about joining and things to know while in the air force as well as WHAT a good job is would be very helpful! thanks in advance.

OSI It can be clerical nightmare or it can be what you make of it. With the current admin passing all these spy on your neighbor for peace and suspect is guilty until proven otherwise, it should have some longevity. Could lead to JAG or something, the skills learned can transfer easily into todays markets.

Since you already have a degree, you can and hopefully are going to be commissioned, you'll be an officer. I would go into a medical field. You can't lose there!

If you already have your BA, then you should be going in as an officer...I'd suggest to specialize in one of the communications career fields...a comm officer gets a lot of training and can even go for a Masters degree at Wright Patterson...(sorry don't remember the school name).
